such as that barack obama lives in regal style in the white house, and has his own presidential dog walker. none of which is true. dana bash who has made a habit of catching lawmakers tries to catch up with michele bachmann. >> i want to ask about the fact that you talked about the excesses he engaged in. the fact he has a dog walker, which is not true. the big point of my speech is about bnz benghazi. >> if you want to focus on -- >> there are four americans killed. >> you are the one who brought it up. >> he is american. >> you are the one that brought it up. >> she is in good shape. >> then bill o'reilly surprised them by going after the republican lawmaker. >> this is a trivial pursuit and michele bachmann made a mistake pursuing it. michele bachmann is
. there are reports that president obama wants to leave the white house to talk stronger gun control laws, which he talked about in his weekly address. >> today, there's still genuine disagreement among well-meaning people what steps we should take to reduce the epidemic of gun violence in this country. but you, the american people, have spoken. you have made it clear that it's time to do something. >> when congress comes back, they will tackle two of the most contentious issues, the budget and gun violence. erroll lewis the political anchor of new york one news and jonathan allen, senior washington correspondent for politico. good to see both of you. jonathan, let start with you. the senate's marathon vote-a-rama, thaerz called, resulted in a budget, the first one that passed that body in four years but as democratic senator tom harkin put it to the "new york times," "we all know this will come to naught. the house will pass a budget, we will pass a budget and we will never agree on it." . why does the senate agree with the charade? >> i'm glad you used the word shar raid. in the senate, 100 votes
trying to assemble a national coalition to win the white house. if you look at what president obama did to fire up his old voters, find new ones replace the ones who lost and try and make sure he took advantage of really take advantage of across the spectrum coalition with many different groups to try to defeat mitt romney when he was an unpopular president, very tough economy, they lost asian voters, latino voters, african american voters, young voters, gay voters, it doesn't matter, it is a challenge and is good they will face it head on. lou: the republican party last year forgot there is a grassroots organization. you can't just be a branding organization, you can't just be a fund-raising mechanism although they were very good at it, you have to have members and people who go to the polls and vote, that seems to be what they touch upon their operation. grassroots. >> no understanding of changing demographics, and no changing nature of american politics. if it was really all the way on the right with social conservatives, they would have won the election. the midwest is changing, the
this morning from the white house on these reports, peter? >> reporter: the latest word, bill, that the obama administration is deeply skeptical of the claims assad is making in syria because as press secretary jay carney says the assad regime has lost all credibility in the eyes of the world but carney made crystal clear the president's position about chemical use, chemical weapon use in syria being a red line has not changed. >> the president clear when he said if assad and those under his command make the mistake of using chemical weapons or fail to meet the obligation to secure them, there will be consequences and they will be held accountable. >> reporter: we still don't know what the consequences would be because carney wouldn't tell us yesterday but he told us the president will talk about what is happening in syria with the leaders of israel, palestine and jordan before he heads back to washington. bill: one of the main topics on the trip. peter doocy live in washington. mart has that a bit more on that. martha? martha: these are not the first we've had out of syria. the rebels accuse
minister netanyahu, but that's different than the lecture he gave to obama in his own digs in the white house. what accounts for the shift here? is it merely the fact that he as there on his open terrain and he wants to be a nice host? or is this a general quinn change of attitude on netanya netanyahu's part? >> well, we're coming to a point where both sides have to think about what happens next. president obama was focused on ending two wars. and now he's facing two different challenges, whether it's iran's potential nuclear capability or what happens next in syria. both offers challenges that israel faces in. and the key question is what happens next, whether it's on iran, syria or ultimately the arab israeli conflict. >> can we afford a kind of symbolic trip here? there's a lot at stake, what the region is going through, what the partners of israel have seen as necessary to protect itself. what the palestinian response has been to two state solutions and what occupation. so how do we figure our way out of here, and how does the president respond to this? does he have anything substan
. rahm is the mayor of chicago. he's been the white house chief of staff under president obama, a member of congress from illinois and special counsel to president clinton in the white house. he's famously profane, enormously confident, he speaks and moves fast. a few more things to know about him, he lost part of a finger after a meat slicer accident while working at arby's. he's trained in ballet. and actually moves like a dancer. it's more of a glide than a walk. even when he's about to close the door in your face. he is the first mayor of chicago not named daly in 22 years. and it willy, to his sorrow, frustration and consternation, chicago has become the poster city for gun violence. you've got kids killing each other in your city, and that's a big deal. on top of everything else in your life, that goes to sleep with you every night and it's here with you in this room right now. >> well, yes. i wake up, the first thing i get is the overnight of what happened. i make it a purpose, which is not done, never done, i call each of the families whose kids have been victims one way or the o
before president obama's departure to israel yesterday. the white house has yet to verify the claims but lawmakers are increasingly calling for action. here's what presidentbama said eaier day in a joint press conference with israeli prime minister netanyahu. >> with respect to chemical weapons, we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in syria right now, you've got a war zone. you have information that's filtered out. but we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened, what was nature of the incident, what can we document, what can we prove. i've instructed me teams to work closely witll oer countries in the region, and international organizations, and institutions to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. i will note without at this point having all the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. we know that there are those there the syrian government who have compressed a willingnesso e-- expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary, to protec
woman who attacked president obama at cpac because he lives in the white house and has security and has somebody walk his dog. he does not have a dog walker by the way. but they are so nutty. why do people take these republicans seriously? i mean they are not doing their job. they are not even close to doing their job. they are not serving the american people. i don't understand why they have as much support as they do. but they still control the congress. they did it. ryan budget yesterday. forces are balanced budget by destroying medicare and medicaid, and reveals obamacare. your take. 866-55-press. >> announcer: radio meets television. the "bill press show." now on current tv. ♪ excuse me, miss ? he's right. those are tough hard water stains, and that cleaner's not gonna cut it. truth is, 85% of us have hard water and many don't even know it. laughing... >> that's hilarious! >> ...and the thinkers thinking. >> okay, so there's wiggle-room in the ten commandments is what you're telling me. >> she's joy behar. >> and current will let me say anything. >> only on cu
process in the middle east. so i think white house officials are feeling good about the trip. the big question, if you talk to experts in the region, is what is president obama going to do now to try to restart peace talks? of course, secretary of state kerry is really taking the lead on that. to what extent will president obama engage in that and get involved? that's what experts around the region will be watching. overall, they believe it's a success. alex? >> something else that could be deemed successful, the first budget in four years after the all nighter friday into saturday, what's the reaction there at the white house? >> final votes came in at 5:00 a.m. the white house thinks it's a good thing, that bill that passed through the senate really echos what president obama would like to see in terms of deficit reduction but the problem, of course, is when you match up is the senate bill with the house bill. the senate bill calls for deficit reduction through increasing taxes and spending cuts and, of course, the house bill calls for steep cuts in balancing the budget within ten y
: but look what president obama did when it came to obamacare. >> that's exactly right. and in the white house, begged him not to do obamacare and made her walk the plank and she didn't get reelected. that was a hill he was willing to die on and let members of his party die on. what's different this time the 94 assault weapons ban, we have ten years of evidence that the relative effectiveness of it and what it showed was that it had minimal to no effect in preventing these kinds of crimes so people are taking a look at this and saying, why should i vote for something that last time around was useless and ineffective and actually unnecessary infringement on the second amendment. >> megyn: do they really believe. are they believes that it would make a difference? show out one other thing, there is a theory among some that this was the plan all along. they knew this part would never get through and now, this allows those in the senate to look more reasonable when they cast a vote in favor of background checks and remainder of the legislation which pales in comparison to the assault weapons
to the white house where president obama is making an announcement, expected to nominate the next cabinet secretary. straight to the press room. >> thank you. everybody have a seat. have a seat. as i've said before, my top priority as president is doing everything we need to do to make sure that we're growing our economy and that we're strengthening our middle class. as i said in my state of the union address last month, every day we should be asking ourselves three questions. one, how do we make sure america is a magnet for good jobs. number two, how do we equip people with the skills they need to get those jobs? and number three, how do we make sure that hard work actually pays off in a decent living? these are the challenges that i've been instructed my team here at the white house and in my entire cabinet to focus on. and a position that's instrumental to tackling these challenges is having an outstanding secretary of labor. so i want to begin by thanking hilda solice and her entire team. including acting secretary seth harris. for the outstanding work they've been doing over the past
of the president obama visit. he baked a cheese filled obama bagel in 2008. this time around, his bagel is empty in the middle. the baker says that's because expectations and enthusiasm for mr. obama changed and the economic situation is worse. >>> to promote the white house easter egg roll april 1st, new video is released of beau the dog searching eggs on his easter aeg hunt of his own. he did pretty well. >>> and actress and comedian tina fey was on inside the actor's studio and she got to answer questions in her sarah palin's voice including one about people buying guns. >> i believe that if everybody had guns, then there would be fewer guns in the stores. >> and that's your morning's dish of scrambled politics. >>> and now for your morning look at the weather, here's bill karins. good morning. >> yeah. >> you missed that. >> i know. she does it just enough. you want more. exactly. the way to do it. >> much unlike the weather. we don't want any more of that. >> i probably can show you snow, but we're going to show you impressive hail instead. this is a storm that rolled through the houston ar
.com and tell us. and no budget? no pay. well, that's the idea behind a new bill designed to get the white house to finish its budget. president obama has missed his budget deadline four out of the last five years, and the new bill would prevent some white house staffers from getting paid until the president submits his budget. senator john cornyn presented the bill. how would the plan work? >> under the law the president is required to submit his budget the first monday in february, that was february the 4th. he didn't do it and now he tells us we'll get it in april. in the meantime, the house and senate will have already acted so the president's rendered himself irrelevant and the american people really don't know what his position is and his leadership position in terms of what our fiscal priorities should be. so, this would dock the pay of the people responsible for preparing it. this is really a shot across the bow, but one to try to get his attention and their attention to try to get them to do what the law requires. >> i would think the opposing party wn not have him involved in the proce
-palestinian issue? >> he gave netanyahu a green light with regards to iran, i think he put a white flag with the palestinian thing. every president comes in his they are going to have peace. in his first term it's only going to take a year. i think president obama understands how complicated the issue is. they have been fighting since the old testament and i don't think it's likely anything is going to happen. he puts the white flag up for that one. >> arthel: let's talk about jordan because you've got 400,000 syrians depending on which report you read fleeing there. one of rebels seized one of the major defense bases which is near the jordanian border. how do you think it will affect his relationship with king abdullah? >> in this regard, they don't want a lot of blood on this. president obama understands that the syrian situation could get a lot worse. all of various groups fighting assad of syria. they want assad to go. they also potentially bring that violence across the border from syria into lebanon and most particularly into jordan. i think obama was trying to have a better relat
talk to the president 531 times in four years -- >> 521, sorry. >> how many times has president obama had a solo news conference in four years? 29. according to our mark noel ar, who keeps all the records. now, that's a solo news conference. the white house will come back and say he's had several appearances, meaning he's sat down with an individual reporter or he has appeared with a foreign leader or answered questions in the oval office. but we're talking about news conferences, closely defined. >> and this is with president ronald reagan, who moved news conferences to prime time the networks of course carrying them in the evening. here he is posing a question or president reagan. >> mr. president, you've said several times recently that the accusation that bothered you most is that you don't care about the poor and disadvantaged. >> well, this is the thing, bill, that we've been trying to correct. it was really precable. cable was in its infancy. >> president reagan had 2/3 of his news conferences in prime time. why? in order to reach over the the press and directly to the public b
again. president obama back in the white house with a full schedule coming off of his trip to the middle east with the president in the middle east from politico, josh gristene, joining united states on our news line this morning. josh, welcome home. >> thank you, bill. it's good to be back. >> bill: >> bill: so any accomplishments that the white house can point to out of the trip to the middle east? >> i say there are two basic accomplishments. the judge seemed to have lifted his standing which was pretty low with the israeli jews. he really had a major, i guess term we are use, a charm offensive there and laid it on pretty thick folks new when he went to pay his respects and he aligned himself with zinism but he didn't wait to do that. the minute he stepped off of the plane, he started talking about the juice had been in this plannedland for thousands of years they are fulfilling their degree, abraham and sarah. he laid it on thick >> bill: if i can jump if. he took a stone from the grave of martin luther king, jr.? >> right. >> which wa
this it guy f-16's, tanks, 1.5 billion dollars a year? >> it's beyond me and you know, we've closed down white house tours, but president obama somehow found 250 million extra to give to the radical islamic government of egypt. it makes no sense at all. i have an amendment that would cut off aid to egypt unless president morsi publicly reaffirms the camp david accord and publicly recognizes israel and says he recognizes the peace treaty or they get no money because i don't think he'll publicly say it. i think he's catering to the radical islamic mob that he'll public do say before he gets more money. >> sean: tomorrow, you'll be speaking to the hispanic chamber in washington and unveiling what you call trust and verify which is your immigration plan. how is it different than say, what marco rubio is proposing in his plan or the president? >> well, what we're trying to do is add teeth to that bipartisan plan. we want to make sure that border security is it in there. as conservatives we're worried you're going to give legal status and give border security later, well, it never comes. like so man
a bigger white house budget than barack obama does. this is a trivial pursuit. and michele bachmann made a mistake pursuing it. >> he says bachmann is playing small ball with the president and can't backup her criticism. >>> to the politics behind the gun control debate. democrats in the senate have decided not to put a ban on assault weapons in their proposed gun control bill, that's because it's not likely to pass. they're putting more of their efforts into required background checks. vice president joe biden says he's not giving up the fight. >> this is not about anybody's constitutional right to own a weapon. for all those who say we shouldn't and can't ban assault weapons, for all those who say the politics is too hard, how can they say that? when you take a look at those 20 beautiful babies and what happened to them and those six teachers and administrators. >> gloria borger joining me now from washington. gloria, what's going on behind the scenes on capitol hill with these gun measures? >> well, if a ban on assault weapons were easy to get, they would have renewed it when it expir
, that's how secretary of state john kerry described president obama's first presidential visit to israel. the white house had set expectations low, but is there was one surprise, when the president persuaded israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu to apologize to turkey over mistakes that led to the death of activists on a flotilla bound for gaza. let me bring in congressman elliott angle. good to see you. >> thank you. >> congressman mike rogers had a very different take than john kerry about the president's trip. let me play it for you. >> i thought the trip was a disappointment for us. i think the president squandered great opportunity to show leadership and push them in a place where they could get an agreement out of a meeting, didn't get it, got a speech, get to some agreement on the path forward on syria, didn't get that. >> so from your perspective, congressman, a disappointment, a success? somewhere in between? >> it was a great success. i was with the president. i flew with him on air force one, traveled with him. he was treated like a rock star in israel. >> how interesting,
post." they said, they have a big black man character with a taste for white women. if you think he looks like obama, there is still another really stupid story embedded in here to get angry about. >> excellent. let's move on to the next one from the devil to the deposits. will they yank from the bank? cypress, an actual country allegedly, is aiming to rescue the economy by raising 10% of the people's fake accounts. on tuesday lawmakers from the tiny african nation will vote on a plan that will allow them to vacuum up citizen savings. as a condition to receive a 12 billion euro dash that's -- that's not a dollar. and they are rushing to take out their money which lead to the government shutting down all of the banks until at least thursday. most upset about all of this is the russian president, vladimir putin. they are rumored of depositing 19 billion euros in the cypress banks. anyway, let's go live to cypress. >> leave him alone, man. >> almost as good as a hawk eating a mouse video. >> what did this mean for america? and america ferarra as a country. >> cypress is to russia as th
to hear from him very shortly. the white house says this trip is a chance for president obama is connect with the israeli people. a poll published last week shows only 10% had a favorable attitude for him. president obama and israeli leaders both agree that something needs to be done to keep iran from developing nuclear weapons. israel threatened to take military action if iran appeared to be on the verge of having a bomb. president obama pushed for more time for peace talks but says military action is still on the table. president obama once hep weres up his -- once he wraps up this conference, he will head to speak to benjamin netanyahu where they will hold a press conference in about three hours. back to you. >> thank you. >>> a sheriff says it appears a 911 call to a middle school school in southern minnesota was a hoax. the school in new prague, minnesota immediately went on red alert and locked down each class when a caller said there was someone with an ak-47. a search of the school turned up nothing. they say everyone is southwest. this school is 45 miles southwest of minneapolis
at the conservative conference cpac. bachmann accused president obama of frivolous spending on a lavish white house lifestyle. listen. >> now we find out that there are five chefs on air force one. there are two projectionists who operate the white house movie theater. they regularly sleep at the white house in order to be readily available in case the first family wants a really, really late show. we are also the ones who are paying for someone who walk the president's dog. >> okay. so now watch what happens when cnn's dana bash asks bachmann about her allegations. >> reporter: congresswoman, can i ask you about your speech at cpac. you made some accusations against the president that were either questionable or untrue. can i talk to you about that? i want to ask you some specifics. >> well, the comments that i made about the president are during the benghazi debacle the president went missing. >> reporter: no. what i want to ask you about is the fact that you said -- you talked about the excesses that he's engaged in. the fact that he has a dog walker, which is not true. >> the big point in my sp
of all, the president, president obama's, credibility is very, very critical. they is said from the white house podium that any use from the chemical weapons would be a red line. presumably this would be the trigger for more american involvement. as you know, craig, u.s. has been behind other allies, britain and france pressing on the u.s. to do more. we have done human. aid, nonlethal aid, helped to the combatance, but not what they have been pleading for. which is more weaponry. so there's a lot of pressure on the white house to become more involved in syria. this is skoesten shl because they have to wonder about what will follow the civil war. if assad is going to fall, will it be another vacuum like the vk um that has taken place, leading to huge securityish a us in egypt next door. egypt has a government. not entirely functioning government but it hasn't cancelled the historic peace treaty with israel. but security situation in egypt is collapsing all around it and that is the real fear, if they have total collapse. al qaeda elements increasingly large roles in the opposition. and a
that israel, worse than any ally has been treated. white house has treated them like a beggar. >> sean: why would israel, why would the prime minister who is a very smart man. would he or should he trust obama? i wouldn't trust him if i were him. >> he has to say publicly he does. i don't know what is going on behind the scenes. >> sean: i think it's for public consumption. >> i think netanyahu is a smart guy and making a case and making it clear if he has to he will act unilaterally that could bring president obama in. i'm sure that net snet very concerned. >> sean: he left netanyahu in the white house and said, if you change your mind and come and get me. then he left. then something that the suns united states said never do go back to the '67 borders and nicolas sarkozy says net assassinate liar. i got a deal with him every week. that was pretty rude, too. >> netanyahu is a big boy. what concerns him is what does that show about president obama's real instincts. is he going to war with iran in defense of a country -- that is what netanyahu has to worry about. if to publicly treat netanya

. today president obama will leave for his first trip to israel as president. now, the white house is downplaying expectations for any major steps toward the middle east peace process, but of course the president's meetings and appearances have been very carefully orchestrated. he will check out the iron dome air defense missile launcher partially funded by the united states. he'll visit the dead sea scrolls at the israel museum in jerusalem to show he believes in the ancient jewish connection to israel. he'll lay a wreath at a zionist visionary theater tomb as well as slain prime minister's its ak rabin's grave. the president will have several meetings and working dinner with newly re-elected prime minister benjamin netanyahu. of course, no secret that the relationship between these two leaders hasn't always been a warm one. besides discussing peace between israel and palestine what a-- oe of the other major topics is iran's nuclear program. the president encouraged their leaders to move toward peace. >> now is the time for the iranian government to take immediate and meaningful s
rivers, abc news, rome. >> new at 11:00, president obama is set to name a new secretary of labor. a white house source says thomas perez of the justice department will be nominated to head the labor department. he has strong support from latino and labor groups and he could run into problems from republicans. now a follow-up to a story we first brought you last night at 11:00. the meat and poultry industry is pushing back against those hard to watch videos of animal cruelty. it is videos like these that the new legislation appears to want to restrict. a bill sponsored by the cattle man's association would require anyone collecting evidence of abuse to turn it over to authorities within 48 hours. they say abuse should be stopped as soon as possible rather than waiting until someone makes a video. critics contend that the industry should want to stop the cruelty rather than the documenting of it. >>> a mystery in southern california has animals baffled. the starving sea lion pups are washing up on beaches more and more each week and no one is sure why. clayton sandal explains many are worki

guess i was surprised when obama cut the deal to create this, acting people in the white house if it would impact the women, infants and children program, the wic program they said well we don't think it's going to happen. i think the impact will be worse on low income americans and anything that shafts low income americans will happen, unfortunately. because it's pointless, mindless and counterproductive does not mean that they're not going to become u.s. law. >> john: they really thought that lucy would not pull the football away from charlie brown this time and now we're paying the price. you're battling hunger. how can the sequestration hurt your program. >> women who are pregnant, low income family with nutritional supplements prevented half a million babies from dying at birth. the sequestration is cutting 700,000 pregnant women and infants off the wic program. it's literally taking milk out of the mouths of hungry infants. now this program has prevented half a million babies from dying at birth. so it's ironic to me that most of the people who support these cuts claim t
, why should they trust barack obama, who snubbed just beyond the pale snubbed bb netanyahu in the white house, that claimed they should go back to '67 border, we promised israel we would never ask them to do that. obama did it and then on top of that, sarkozy says that bb is a liar and oh, i've got to deal with him every week. why would bb netanyahu ever trust this man, the israelis, because i wouldn't if i were them. >> it's not about trust, it's about business. a, if you want to keep the checks flowing. b, you're an ally, and sarkozy was not elected in-- >> what does that have to do with something. >> they agree that iran will not have a nuclear bomb for at least another year. >> sean: and if they want the check flowing and-- >> remember the camp david accord and apologize for saying that israelis are descendents of apes and pigs, that would be a good start, right. >> the egyptians say they don't want the money. >> sean: they do-- by the american taxpayers, we can't afford to keep the white house open, but we're funding the terrorist terrorist, the former head of the muslim brotherhoo
